Class 8 trucks were projected to fall flat in October in comparison to September, according to numbers from analysts at the FTR.
The FTR projected orders of 13,800 units for the month. The net order number was negatively impacted by a cleanup of long-term orders by OEM. As a result of a backlog, orders would have been closer to 21,300.
Medium-duty class 5-7 trucks were projected to be 18,400 units, a 10% drop from September and 18% from October of last year.
